i do not have another HDD to store all my information on. but when I'v tried to go to startup and recovery there is no [edit] icon anywhere. I tried looking for the boot.ini i cant find it, the closest file i can find to it is bootstat.dat and also a fold called "BOOT" and has folders in it called DVD, EFI, Fonts, and PCAT.
I have recently chose to update my laptop that didnt have a disk drive so i had to put the laptops HD in my desktop and wipe the drive and install Windows 7 on it but now after i have removed the HD from my desktop it asks me to choose an operating system to run, one does not work because it was for the laptop's hd and one is my desktops hd that works. its annoying to see constantly.

There is no boot.ini with Vista or Windows 7 (or Windows 8).

Install EasyBCD then use it to remove the OS that no longer exists.

Thanks so much, it worked and everything is back to normal.
